With the 2020 New Year upon us it is a great time to make some resolutions and improve ourselves. Why not make this year about caring for your oral health? There are many reasons why taking care of your teeth is a great resolution. The Drs. Boyd in Midtown East go over the top three.
Dental anxiety can be rough. It paralyzes patients from seeing the dentist, taking care of dental problems or prevent them from doing esthetic dentistry to improve their smiles. At the Drs. Boyd in midtown Manhattan, we work with patients to help manage their anxiety but many times patients need something extra for relaxation. This is why we offer our patients the benefit of sedation dentistry.
Let’s face it, the dentist office is not the first place people tend to want to go. Most dental procedures are not painful but even just examining someone’s teeth can cause a level of anxiety. Dental fear and dental anxiety is a problem that faces as many as 20% of Americans. Unfortunately the problem often snowballs, the less people go (or never at all) the worse and more serious any potential problems will tend to be. This is why at Drs. Boyd we take every step to ensure that patients feel comfortable and we take away their anxiety. Here we will discuss what brings about dental phobia and how we can deal with it!

It’s that time of the year again. The days are shorter, the temperature is dropping, leaves are falling, and families are getting together to celebrate the season. A recent study revealed that more than 50% of people in the US with dental insurance never use their benefits, and insurance providers count on it. If you have dental insurance and haven’t been to our office for dental care in 2015, you’re losing money. For patients who contribute to a Flexible Spending Account (FSA) and don’t use the money, that too gets absorbed at the end of the year. Don’t let your benefits go to waste. Visit our Midtown Manhattan dental practice to take full advantage of your dental health coverage in 2015, and remember, we can help you plan your FSA withholding for 2016. It needs to be set prior to December 31, 2015.
